What is a Morkie?

A Morkie is the result of breeding a purebred Yorkshire Terrier and a purebred Maltese dog. Morkies are also bred with one another.

A Morkie’s looks, personality and health come from both breeds, and not always in equal proportions. They come in a wide variety of unique colours, including white, brown and black and combinations of colours. Because they have HAIR not fur, Morkies don’t shed and are great for people with allergies. 

Like their parents, Morkies are anywhere from about 5 pounds to 8 pounds or more. They are between 6″and 10″ high at the shoulder.  The Morkie has a compact body, and a rounded canine head with mid-length muzzle.  

Morkies have big brown or black eyes and a playful, mischievous expression.
